It's a Beautiful Wedding Day

I wanted to share this article from Saturday's Telegraph magazine about a very special Finnish wedding.

The vision of Dai Fujiwara (Issey Miyake) who, in 2007, spoke at 'It's a Beautiful Day', a design conference which was organised by the Alvar Aalto Foundation. The theme 'It's a Beautiful Wedding Day'.

The bride and groom, Ulla-Maaria Mutanen and Jyri Engeström, agreed to leave the entire planning and design of their day in the hands of Fujiwara and an impressive list of international designers, who all contributed their time and ideas free of charge in order to be part of the project.

Dai Fujiwara designed the stunning wedding gown which is based on a hexagon, the groom's suit and an outfit for the couples baby son, Eliel.

Ronan and Ewan Bouroullec designed the chairs which the couple sat on during the ceremony.

Hella Jongeirus created a beautiful corsage, which was used in place of a traditional bouquet.

Miguel Fluxá, whose family own Camper, provided the hand stitched footware, inspired by classic dancing shoes.

Ilkka Suppanen's contribution was his 'Temporary' wedding ring, which has an interesting story itself.

The ceremony took place at Alvar Aalto's studio in Helsinki, Tiilimäki 20, in February with snow gently falling.

I hope that you enjoy the article... I can imagine that it was also a wonderful wedding day!
